Ryan just went on his first ever Boy Scouts camping trip and
I made him a stuck sack to carry his sleeping bag.
It took less than an hour since I wasn't concerned with exact measurements.
Here's what I did:
1. I pulled a sample to gauge measurements and cut the fabric by eyeballing it.
You will need one super long piece for the main body and a circular piece for the bottom.
2. I sewed the circular piece to the bottom edge of the main body piece, then I sewed the edges of the main body piece together except for the last 2".
3. I folded the top 2" in half and sewed a 1" drawstring casing.
4. I flipped the bag right-side out, and painted Ryan's name using Martha Stewart stencils.
5. I placed a scrap fabric over the paint and ironed for 30 seconds until dry.
Then, I took Ryan's sleeping bag...
and threw it in the stuff sack.
Ryan was one happy camper!
